Leader of the pack


Are you a natural leader? Or do you need help finding out how to become a good leader in your own life, to discover your inner Alpha Wolf?

You probably know that the best leaders come from a position of confidence, kindness and consistency in their deeds, inspiring trust and respect in others and encouraging them to be the best they can be.

But just where do wolves come into all of this?

Join the Girls Around Town next weekend to hear guest Mel Downing explain why her leadership courses use the powerful metaphor of the wolf pack and how becoming an Alpha Wolf can help you take responsibility for achieving your own future success, whatever that means to you!

“Wolves are a highly organised and benevolent species,” says Mel. “They live in packs led by the Alpha Pair, which makes all the decisions in the life of the pack and every decision is made for the good of the pack.

“Whether you’re running your own business, changing career, parenting children, struggling with relationships or want to take your life in a different direction, our one-day Personal Leadership and Empowerment courses use their example to give you all the tools and support you need to find a better way of living and working in the world.”

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon next Sunday when Mel joins June, Tina and Sue to talk about this unique approach to developing your personal leadership skills. And if you’re a dog owner, you’ll want to hear what she says about two new courses on Canine Conversation too…

Getting women back into work

If you’re a woman looking to get back on the employment ladder, you’ll know there’s a lot more to it than just updating your CV and popping down to the nearest job centre or employment agency.

Sorting out common problems such as child care, transport and gaps in your digital skills are just a few of the things you need to consider before you even get that far. But where do you turn if you need help making sure you’re ready to take the next step?

Well, if you live in North Kesteven and you’re unemployed or have been out of the job market for some time, the answer’s easy. You need to get involved in Succeeding Together

Part of the three-year Greater Lincolnshire MOVE project, it’s designed to create opportunities for you to get together in small groups across the county to learn new skills, develop your confidence and share your experiences of getting back into work or setting up a business.

Find out more by joining the Girls Around Town next weekend, when Fiona White of Community Lincs explains just what’s on offer, from free access to five monthly development sessions for each group, use of the My WorkSearch tool, referrals to women’s business networks, introductions to a range of business advice services and more.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday 19 February  to hear how working together can give you all the advice and support you need to succeed together…
